Are there times when it’s more effective for you to relax than pressure yourself? After you read this quote from David Allen, please post your comments on how you handle this self-management challenge.
“What compounds the challenges of the self-management game is that often the most effective thing to do feels like the last thing you’re capable of doing. When you most need to plan is when you least think you have the time. When you most need to relax is when you feel most pressured to push hard. And when you most need to deal with cleaning up the minutiae of your life is when you feel most compelled to try to stay focused on something ‘more strategic.’”
